The Final Destination
It's a new year, but you'd hardly know it from the crop of DVD and Blu-ray releases hitting store shelves tomorrow, January 5th, 2010. The Final Destination, which showed up on a couple of the DC staff's worst of 2009 lists, is probably the pick of the week, so that tells you what kind of offerings we're looking at.
And now a bit of international flavor to cap off your Tuesday (which strangely feels very much like a Monday). International posters for four of the States' biggest horror titles have surfaced today, and we've got every single one of them for you along with a side of your choice.
The estimated four-day Labor Day weekend box office numbers are in, and they paint a somewhat surprising picture for the latest genre offerings. 3D is still obviously high on everyone's end-of-summer fun-o-meter, as are prawns -- and not just the kind you throw on the barbie.
The fans have spoken, and The Final Destination won its opening weekend box office battle with Halloween II. But the real test of its mettle is how Trembles sees it, so of course it's the topic of this week's Motion Picture Purgatory.
The (almost) final weekend box office numbers are in, confirming our earlier report that David R. Ellis' The Final Destination had emerged as the champ in its battle against Rob Zombie's Halloween II. The numbers? $28.3 million (a whopping $9,079 per screen) for TFD (no doubt benefiting from its 3D price bump) and $17.4 million (a much smaller average of $5,754) for H2.
Warner Bros. just sent over four audio files for you guys to download and dig on while you're gearing up for this weekend's big horror showdown!
The Final Destination is upon us and we've got lots of killer clips for you to cut your teeth on before this Friday's release. I think this is going to be a great time at the movies. Check these clips and judge for yourself!
